Billboard has put together a panel of expers to review wines, and WTR got some great reviews.
Tasting Panel Had this to say about Grateful Dead Red Wine Blend: "As soon as you stick your nose in the glass, you definitely get a note that this is a serious wine." A panel favorite. Definitely not just for your Deadhead uncle.
Check out this review!

Matisyahu made an appearance in a Rolling Stone-sponsored event at the Park Here pop-up at 201 Mulberry (aka OpenHouse Gallery).
A few hours before he kicked off the New York leg of his tour in Williamsburg, Matisyahu along side 2 band members who broke into some hypnotic dub rythems. Freestyling and beatboxing intermittently, Matisyahu mixed in some of his trademark lyrics from older songs. A great set, short and sweet! Yeah, Matisyahu has indeed shaved off his trademark beard, but he sounded great and the croud loved every second of his performance. Respect due to Matisyahu!

For the oenophilic deadhead:
Grateful Dead may not have been associated with wine drinking, but the band now has its own signature red called Steal Your Face. Sold in three-packs, the wine has a mix of Syrah, Petite Sirah, Zinfandel and Grenache tastes with notes of black cherries and vanilla and a caramel finish. Let's raise a glass to deadhead Barack Obama!
